Conserving Space

One of the easiest traps to fall into with self storage is clutter and disorganization.  Even with the best of intentions, over time people tend to get careless and begin shoving items into storage without thinking about the long-term consequences.  Once your self storage unit is taken over with clutter, it’s hard to go back to the beginning. Organization is something you have to constantly practice.  The good news is that it’s easy to stay organized if you do it from the very start.

One way to stay organized is to conserve space in your self storage unit. The less room you take up with items, the more chance you’ll have at keeping everything straight and neat. One way you can do this is to disassemble larger furniture items like tables and beds.  Be sure to put all hardware into plastic bags and tape them underneath the item so that small screws and bolts don’t get lost. While sofas can’t be taken apart, they can often stand on their sides in a vertical position, which will free up valuable space for other items.

Another way to conserve space is to fill drawers with small items, or to put various items into appliances like dryers or refrigerators.  Be sure to catalog everything you put into other items so you’ll know where everything is. Keeping lists is essential when it comes to organization for self storage.  Staying in control is what organization is all about.

Anything you can do to optimize space will go a long way towards staying organized for self storage.  If you have any questions about organizing your self storage unit, be sure to contact us here at Hollywood Self Storage on Belair Road in Evans, Georgia.
